Will God, deceive you? If so, why and show “Holy Scriptures”

Would God, deceive people, if so, what fashion would He use? Would God deceive His own people and if so why, and how. Have you ever read in your “Bible” where GOD deceived people, I have , quite a few times and in some places He said He would deceive people.
That question is looking at God in a very negative way -- He Is God Almighty -- why not go about learning More in That respect.

Satan's goal is to turn mankind Away from God. And he's been doing a good job of it.

So -- focus More on God -- who He is -- His powerfulness.


Hi PloughBoy,
No disrespect, but can you answer your own post as to clarify
as to what you are asking, to help others to why you posted it.

It is always about edification and the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I do understand what you are saying. I hope this “Paragraph “ of “Holy Scripture “ make sense. Chapter and verses are not apart of God’s Word. This is a paragraph.❤!

1Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, a and of faith in God, 2instruction about cleansing rites, b the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3And God permitting, we will do so.

New Living Translation
So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.

English Standard Version
Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

I know this is not for everyone, I know that. But there are a few, who want to launch out into the Deep and the Deep- ness of GOD. And you have to be clothed with a deep diving suit, some say, you don’t Need all of that, I understand that too. I have heard many of “Christians” that said: I’m not that deep, I’m shallow, I would think to my self, you are not shallow, you are on the “Beach” playing, “volleyball and beach ball“. Now don’t get me wrong I like those activities too! I have heard some Christians say to me , I want some of that of what you got, but not that much!” I do not say anything. But I think to myself, “no you Don’t”! Why, because“ it comes with a cost”.

27Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost,

New King James Version
When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

I’m proclaiming to you!
For we are “Fisherman” and we are to make “Disciples” and we launch out into the Deep! “Come on”. “You are not going to Drown”!!!!
Yes, He will. Deceive you.
Why, for His own purpose and glory.
Make sure we understand the”exhausted” meaning of the biblical word “deceive”:cool: now I will show a few “scriptures “ you all ready know of. keep in context.

(Ezekiel 14).
7For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to inquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself: 8And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

9And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. 10And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;

(1 Kings 22)
20And the Lord said: Who shall deceive Achab, king of Israel, that he may go up, and fall at Ramoth Galaad? And one spoke words of this manner, and another otherwise. 21And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said: I will deceive him. And the Lord said to him: By what means? 22And he said: I will go forth, and be a lying spirit, in the mouth of all his prophets. And the Lord said: Thou shalt deceive him, and shalt prevail: go forth, and do so.

there are more “Holy Scriptures” to confirm. There are great stories, of the “Strategies” of God” in the bible. But. Remember always (that “vengeance” and “revenge”) always belong to the “LORD”. Capital “LORD” not “Lord” there is a difference .


Hi PloughBoy
Thanks for the scripture, you say in your post seven quote!
Yes He will deceive YOU.
Who is YOU, Can you explain please.
With Love, Wnl
God Is Sovereign - - Yes, absolutely.

Isn't that one passaage talking about prophets -- there Are false prophets. These couple of passages are talking about God's actions in a particular set of circumstances with Old Testament prophets.

Your comment makes it sound like God will deceive people on purpose. Sounds like you're Almost putting God in the same arena as satan being the master deceiver / liar of mankind.

God does Not 'lie' to mankind. If He did -- then how would 'we' be able to Trust Any of His Word.

You are setting up a scenario for people To potentially think that God can't be trusted. And ya Don't want to do that.
That is why the Schooled Atheists who knows his Greek and have read the Original Manuscripts have made the statement, “Christians” do not know their bibles or have read the whole thing”. This is a known statement! Atheists has said this “if they have read their bibles throughly, “Noway in the world they would serve a God like this”! You see, no matter how much education you have or how many languages you can speak, if you have not been “regenerated” you can’t See the truth,

Good News Translation
"God has blinded their eyes and closed their minds, so that their eyes would not see, and their minds would not understand, and they would not turn to me, says God, for me to heal them." (John 12).
There is a verse that says 'A fool has said in his heart that there is no God." found in Psalm 14:1 "The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, There is none who does good."

And I've known a couple of people who seem to be okay with picking apart Scripture just because they Can.. There's one on this forum like that. Their mind-set seems to be that since they are using the KJV that they can pick any verse in Scripture and get it to say anything they want it to and be Right because, after all, it Is the KJV. And They feel that they are finally getting to the real truth, when in reality they are badly misled.
I agree concerning deception. For Satan has deceived the whole world, There are many things we all are deceived in ( speaking in terms referring to the children of God now)! We all walk in a dark place. He is our light that shines on our path, guides our feet. But the path is so narrow, and hard is “The Way”! On that path, the winds blow, the storms come, the valleys are low, the mountains are high, the rivers are sometimes wide, the creeks are strong yet not deep but still has it’s perils. Sometimes it is cope and travel in weakness, weariness, lonely,-ness, dis- hearted, but one thing He promise, He would carry us through.
“As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,!i will fear no evil, for thou art with me”!❤
